    Pros

    Everyone is friendly and nice to work with. Couldn't ask for a better manager. Able to talk and get to build relationships with customers.

    Cons

    $8.00/hr wage. When a tech depot service doesn't work out, it's on your hands. I know too much about technology and my skills are worth more than $8.00/hour.

    Advice to Management

    Other companies are paying their employees starting at $10 an hour for work a thousand times easier than the tasks of a Tech Associate, we shouldn't be working for minimum wage.


  2. "minimum wage (+ non-existent commissions)"

    Pros

    Flexible schedules (when the manager likes you), discounts on cool stuff, encouragement to learn high-pressure sales tactics.

    Cons

    Commission is only paid if the entire store meets its goals. You can make 300% of your daily goals in PPP & TDS sales and if your store doesn't make it you don't get more then minimum wage. Your 12 week average can't be more then 32 hours, so if you work too much they will cut you until your average drops and then over-schedule you once your average is down.
    There is a "health plan" that is not health insurance (per the plan documents), it has a $1,000 a year payout maximum and doesn't actually cover hospitalizations, surgeries, etc.

    Advice to Management

    Re-examine benefits. An employee who quits to avoid getting fired should not be re-hired in a management position. There should be more continuity across the company.
